Playing on PS4 PRO External Storage?
Hi! I have my PS4 PRO and planning to buy an external drive. Does playing on the external storage decrease the loading speed/ performance etc. of games? PS4 PRO uses SATA 3.0 which is i think around 5 or 6 gigabits/sec and most of the external drive is USB 3.0 which is below the SATA 3 speed.
Im having trouble choosing between the Seagate Game Drive 4TB which uses USB 3.0 and WD My Passport 4TB which has two versions ( USB 3.0 or USB 3.2 Gen 1)
Thank you in advance.
Updating this to gather more answers. Thanks in advance!!

you cannot play games off of external drives. you can only backup saves and play movies/music on the player app.
